She proceeded to read her degree in Medicine at The Leicester-Warwick Medical School. In addition to being a GP, she is a qualified GP trainer, mentoring doctors wishing to pursue a career in General Practice.
Dr Khalid has an interest in preventative medicine, with a focus on lifestyle factors, nutritional science and the gut microbiome. She believes quick-fix solutions such as medication are helpful but can also incur problems such as possible drug interactions, side effects and often limited efficacy. Dr Khalid aims to identify the root cause of a medical problem and treat the underlying trigger of symptoms to help patients function better.
